How can one disagree with Wilson when he says, vis-a-vis the Midgetman "we can't afford to waste $25 billion"? It is ironic, however, that Wilson steadfastly supported the B-1, which, rendered almost totally impotent by its technical deficiencies, has wasted $28 billion to date, with no end in sight. Could this inconsistency have anything to do with jobs/votes per billion wasted? JACK BAILEY Studio City

Re "UFW Must March to the Beat of a New Generation," Opinion, May 1: How incredibly naive of Ruben Navarrette Jr. to think that those who criticize the United Farm Workers are simply acting on "a desire to make an ailing UFW 'better.' " Who exactly are these good-hearted critics Navarrette is referring to? Is it California's powerful agribusiness industry? Is it the California Table Grape Commission, which has repeatedly waged disinformation campaigns against the union? Is it the bureaucratic Agricultural Labor Relations Board, known to stall UFW certifications for years?

A bitter stalemate has emerged over the U.S. Department of Justice's refusal to accept three federal judgeship candidates who were recommended by Gov. Pete Wilson when he was a senator and endorsed by his successor, John Seymour. Approval has been blocked on a variety of grounds, according to some of those involved in the dispute: Los Angeles Superior Court Judge William A. Masterson is regarded by the department as too old at 60, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Dzintra I.

Those of us in California who care about the fair employment of minorities and women are outraged by President Bush's veto of the civil rights bill, and by California Sen. Pete Wilson's initial vote against this landmark legislation and his decisive support for the President's veto. We are living in tough economic and spiritual times. Unfortunately, bigotry finds a fertile breeding ground in such a climate. The presidential veto, and Sen. Wilson's crucial vote to uphold that veto, sends a clear message that intolerance is again acceptable.

The candidates' positions are not very dissimilar, as the Oct. 7 debate illustrated. Oh, a few differences, but not enough to sway a vote. Now, once again in an important race, the voting public is down to judging personality, leadership and backbone; and during the debate, Dianne Feinstein seemed the more comfortable in expressing leadership and drive. Here, Feinstein's experience with adversity stands her in good stead . . . her balance in guiding the San Francisco city government back into healthy re-emergence after a scarring, murderous day in its history.

Sen. Pete Wilson underwent an emergency appendectomy this afternoon at the Bethesda Naval Hospital in Bethesda, Md., according to his spokesman Otto Bos. The 51-year-old Republican became ill over the weekend and was driven to the hospital this morning by an aide after complaining of "acute pains in the abdomen," Bos said. The illness of California's junior senator caused him to miss crucial votes on the federal budget.

Sen. Pete Wilson, pale and a little thinner from an emergency appendectomy, walked out of Bethesda Naval Medical Center today with instructions from his doctors to take life easy for at least a month. But the California Republican, whose dramatic midnight ambulance ride from the hospital to cast a crucial vote on the budget a week ago, told aides as he emerged from the hospital, "I am anxious to get back to work."

Malibu's struggle to become a city has spilled over into the California governor's race, with Democratic hopeful Dianne Feinstein saying that, if elected, she would support legislation calling for a speedy incorporation of the seaside community. "In my view, the will of the people--as expressed quite clearly this past June--should be carried out," Feinstein said, in a letter sent to Malibu's unofficial City Council.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor refused Thursday to reinstate California's campaign contribution limits, prompting Republican gubernatorial candidate Pete Wilson to announce he will begin seeking large donations. For the second time in less than a week, O'Connor denied without comment a request that she block last week's lower court decision striking down the contribution limits of Proposition 73 as unconstitutional.
